THE PUREST 911 OF ALL
The iconic Porsche 911R
The 911R was the brain child of the legendary Ferdinand Piëch, his aim in 1967 was to build the lightest, fastest production-based road car in Porsche history. To achieve this every major body panel was re-manufactured in composite. All superfluous items were removed, custom 7-inch rear wheels were produced to provide extra traction and the flat six from the race winning 906 was installed. The result was one of the lightest 911’s to date at just 800kg. When combined with the 220-horsepower engine, it proved a winning combination, breaking numerous world records at Monza in October 1967.
The 911R was the forerunner for all subsequent race spec 911’s and is considered the purest 911 of all, with only 20 original cars produced, it’s also extremely rare.
Recreating the purest 911 of all:
At the outset of the project our goal was to celebrate this iconic car and its place in automotive history for the 50th anniversary of the Monza world records.
